Japanese Language

Wikipedia says that nearly 128 million people of the world speak Japanese. This East Asian language is the national language of Japan and is the member of Japonic or Japanese - Ryukyuan language family.The Japanese language doesn’t have a genetic relationship with the Chinese language but it uses Chinese character, or Kanji extensively in its writing system and a large portion of its vocabulary is acquired from Chinese.Similarly, the Japanese writing system primarily uses two syllabic (or moraic) scripts - hiragana and katakana alongside the Kanji.Also, Latin script is used to some extent for imported acronyms, while the numeral system chiefly makes use of Arabic numerals alongside the traditional Chinese numerals.

Award International Institute has been dedicated to teaching the Japanese language to the students.The institute provides counseling service to the students since its establishment and promises quality support to the students enrolled in the institute.It includes a team of specialized career counseller and highly skilled language trainer. Students are trained and provided information about Japan, its language, culture, lifestyle, and educational system so that they can easily adjust in Japan.

Types of Japanese Language Test:

  • The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (???????, Nihongo N?ryoku Shiken) measures a person's proficiency in the Japanese language. Test results are widely used by professionals seeking employment at Japanese companies and students seeking acceptance at Japanese educational institutions to certify their language proficiency.

The test has five levels, from level 5 for beginners to level 1 for advanced students. Writing, reading, listening, vocabulary and grammar skills are all tested during the 1.5 to 3 hour test. The JLPT is held twice a year, in July and December, in various cities inside and outside of Japan (only once per year in some locations).

  • The Japanese Language NAT-TEST is an examination that measures the Japanese language ability of students who are not native Japanese speakers. The tests are separated by difficulty (five levels) and general ability is measured in three categories: Grammar/Vocabulary, Listening and Reading Comprehension. The format of the exam and the types of questions are equivalent to those that appear on the Japanese Language Ability Test (JLPT).

Levels 1 and 2 of the exam contain the following sections: Language Knowledge (reading/vocabulary/grammar) and Listening. Levels 3, 4 and 5 of the exam contain the following sections: Language Knowledge (reading/vocabulary), a second Language Knowledge (grammar, reading comprehension) and Listening.
